T.S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral is both a fascinating retelling of the 12th-century assassination of Archbishop Thomas Becket and a compelling call for resistance in the face of intimidation. Written against the backdrop of rising Fascism in 20th-century Europe, Eliot’s classic verse play is as relevant now as it ever was. This re-release of the original 1953 recording stars Robert Donat whose commanding performance as the Archbishop, alongside a full cast, is widely celebrated.
"Murder in the Cathedral"
Robert Louis Stevenson's Sire de Maltroit's Door was published in 1882. Robert Donat plays the French soldier Denis de Beaulieu and his wife Renee Asherson plays Blanche de Maltroit. Set during the Anglo-French war of 1429, Denis de Beaulieu faces a daunting choice – marriage to Blanche, or death.
